her: "But, Mommy, now I'm four years old."
we had a nice day and celebrated with a little cupcake (real cake and party will happen this Sunday) and L. wasted no time and played with her new toys all afternoon.
then, this morning: "Mommy, is it Sunday yet?"
me: "No, just a few more days."
L.: "because I want it to be ice cream sundae!"
(thanks for the gift, B & C; I better get to the store quick so she can find out what it is!)

He's vertical and trying to keep up with those girls.
I think of you, olittles, when I watch BR walk. Just recently his hands came down to shoulder-length when he toddles around. Up until last week, though, he held them high up in the air, reaching for those mama hands he still thinks should be there, I guess!

it's got a great ring to it if you do it backwards:
"there or here them like not would I.
anywhere them like not would I.
am-I-Sam them like not do I,
ham and eggs green like not do I.
house a in them like you would?
mouse a with them like you would?"
"No quiero los huevos verdes con jamon."
or, in French:
"Je ne voudrais pas, je ne pourrais pas dans un bateau.
Je ne les prendrais pas avec une chevre.
Pas dans le noir! Pas sur un arbre!
Pas dans une voiture! Laisse-moi tranquille!"
And then if you realize suddenly that you actually don't know how to say mouse, or fox or goat in Spanish and you're ready to give up, there's your 3 yr-old cheerleader: "Try it and you may, I say!"
Oh, and you don't actually have to worry about any mistakes 'cause you can bet your house AND car AND your Christmas bonus that your 2 yr-old hasn't noticed anything different about the way you're reading it tonight anyway!
